BIG Rule Change

Post by DoubleDipper on Mon Jun 24, 2013 5:34 pm

Women’s basketball 10-second rule

The 10-second rule in the backcourt will be implemented for the first time since the NCAA began administering women’s championships in 1981-82.  The 30 second shot clock will remain.

Also, the "closely guarded" rule in the frontcourt has been changed to read, “A player holding the ball for five seconds with a defender not exceeding six feet will be a violation.” Previously, the defender had to be within three feet of the offensive player with the ball to force a five-second violation.

I believe there is no doubt these changes will increase the tempo of the game and create more offensive scoring opportunities....if that's what the NCAA is looking for. Basketball

Women’s basketball media timeouts
When a team-called timeout occurs within or up to 30 seconds of the scheduled media timeout (first dead ball under the 16-, 12-, 8-, and 4-minute marks), it becomes the subsequent media timeout with the exception of the first team-called timeout in the second half.
For example, when Team A calls a timeout at 16:02 in the first half, there will not be another timeout at the first dead ball under the 16-minute mark.
This will eliminate consecutive timeout stoppages in play.
It doesn't happen all that much, but good. There's too many timeouts in basketball.

Does that mean the team isn't charged with a timeout if it becomes a media timeout?

That should make for interesting gamesmanship...

One more thing for the endless string of bench coaches to keep track of.
